A great place to learn and explore. I spent the whole day there and still couldn't finish the entire museum! Very impressive exhibit. Perfect place for family with kids. A good choice for solo travellers too.

Nice few hours spent with little ones.

This place is easy to reach via public transportation; it's buggy friendly; and the cafe is lovely. My little girls loved the dinosaur skeletons and the interactive room with all manner of buttons and levers with which to play.

Would definitely recommend to go with a kid. A lot of the rooms where under construction. Most of the dinosaurs are replicas, but still fun to see.

If you Love Museums, then you will Love this One. It has a Great Exebition of All types of Prehistoric Dinosaurs. It is in the West Side of Town in Bockenheim. You can catch the S-Bahn 8 or 9 towards Hanau get Off at Hauptbahnhof Frankfurt am Main (Main Station), then Take the U-Bahn 4 towards Bockenheimer Warte, then you are St the Museum. Have a Nice Time!

Our child loved it but was too crowded and difficult with a stroller
Jan 2020 • Family
We were there with our child and a baby. All in all, it was a pleasant experience. But two adults are needed if a stroller is involved.

What we liked:
- our child fascinated by dinosaurs loved the whole museum and even the diplodocus outside the building.
- most of what is displayed has the names in English
- I could find a calm corner in the room with the microscopes to nurse the baby while my child was looking through the microscopes
- we could take photos everywhere

What we did not like
- we missed most of the info because it was displayed only in German
- it is not a stroller friendly place. There are lots of rooms with stairs and no lifts between rooms. There is one lift to the different floors, but it was very crowded and the wait to have a turn on the elevator is long
- there are nice small activities for children around the museum, but it was very difficult for our child to have a turn because there were too many kids and several just pushed him away to take a turn
- our child couldn’t walk around freely because we were afraid to lose him in the crowd
- we wanted to take a break and have something to drink, but the cafeteria was overcrowded so we needed to leave because our child was tired
